TPG TeamManager: Management of team availability
Access the latest information concerning a project teams’ workloads, including absences, project-related work and line activities. With TPG TeamManager, line managers can quickly and easily plan which projects their staff will be involved in and the commitments assigned to each department. TPG TeamManager is used to plan department resources but not individual project tasks, giving line managers complete resource visibility.
Visibility of Actual Project Availability for Employees
Requests for generic or named resources by the project manager are automatically updated from Microsoft Project Server, enabling line managers to see them and allocate their staff’s available capacity accordingly.
